Future of DMO Marketing

Adapt or die

 

Today’s destinations face a different reality; one where traveller behaviours and decision-making processes are dynamic.

· The collaborative economy The emergence of websites like AirBNB, Couchsurfing,Yelp and Uber that allow travellers to create their own travel ecosystem.
· Social Media Social media and the fast adoption of smartphones and tablets by today’s travellers have made their information-seeking process much faster and far more complex.
· User-Generated Content Increasingly research suggests that travellers trust peer reviews or reviews from strangers more than those from friends or colleagues.

Getting noticed online can be difficult

Building a DMO website from scratch can be expensive and take time. Do you face these challenges?

· Lack of in-house marketing expertise
· How to stand out in a crowded online space
· How to engage with consumers in a social world
· A limited DMO budget
· No resources to manage your online presence
· Web developers don’t know tourism

What does that mean for you in an online world? DMOs need:

A visually appealing online presence A focal point to which your existing and potential travellers can go for information and to engage.
Easy to navigate and useful tools Special DMO functionality such as routes, maps, events and itineraries easy to find and easy to use.
Social media functionality To allow visitors to share and engage with your destination content and market on your behalf to their networks.
Broad, well-written content Informative, engaging and entertaining multimedia content enticing travellers to visit your destination.
Search Engine Optimisation To ensure that your destination is easily discoverable on the global online stage.
Integrated marketing strategy A focused, integrated approach to your DMO marketing with the website at the heart of your strategy.
